Mobilis: Different treatments available for back pain

24th September 2008

Mobilis Healthcare has said there are a range of treatments available for patients with back pain.

The company reported the condition costs the UK economy five billion pounds every year and is the largest reason for absence from work after the common cold.

It claimed a number of factors can exacerbate this problem, including wearing ill-fitting shoes, having poor posture, sitting at a desk for extended periods of time or hunching over a computer, as well as suffering sports injuries.

“Treatment for back pain can include exercises, lumbar rolls, insoles, back supports, and cushions and wedges,” the company said.

It added every case of back pain is different, with each patient having an individual condition, so treatments that work for one patient may not work for others.

Earlier this month, Mobilis Healthcare recommended its Echelon Earth shoes to help children reduce the chance of experiencing foot problems and lower back pain.
